Things You Didn't Know About Nicki Minaj


The Top Ten

1 Her birth name is Onika Tanya Maraj

Her full name appeared on Starships because its on the lyric, "My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki". - SpinelliFan

Why do celebrity's have bad birth names, but good stage names? - funnyuser

Well, she was from a different country. There might be loads of people named Onika - SirSkeletorThe3rd

It looks like a Japanese name - Neonco31

2 She is part of Young Money Entertainment

No, that makes perfect sense. Two things that you associate with garbage. - PositronWildhawk

I was shocked, considering how bad young money can be. - SammMinajj

I found that out 6 hours before reading this list! - Kittylitature

I knew that 2 years ago - SirSkeletorThe3rd

3 She is a Christian

You can't tell with all the cursing she does

Well that's surprising. - DarkBoi-X

Hey. Let me tell you something. Nicki Minaj, in my opinion, is good. She is great. Amazing. And you have the full right to dislike or even hate her. But please. It is so terrible to say things like you wish she was a victim of domestic abuse. That she was dead. Or that she should go to hell. I'm not saying you shouldn't have the right to hate or dislike. But saying you wish she would got to hell? A little far, don't you think? - SammMinajj

What are you talking about? I never wrote those, I only said this one. I agree though the go to hell thing was a bit extreme but thanks for letting us hate her. :D

4 Her birthday is December 8, 1982

Sorry! This is my first time making a list! I meant December 8, 1982 - SammMinajj

So she wasnt even born yet? No surprise because that's how old you have to be to write a better song than nicki - simpsondude

5 Her butt is fake

Everybody knows that you fool

Wait what the heck! I didn’t know this. - TerryThebestsoccerplayer

99.99% of her is fake, talent included. Her fans as well.

Who doesn't know that?

6 Her raps are written by her, and her personally

And they all suck - DarkBoi-X

Um what the hell does that matter? You're no better than us, you're just a stupid 10 year old butt hurt fan. It's not one person hating, it could be others. You said why express your opinion if it's negative? Well I guess they want to say it out loud. You probably hate artists to. Lil kim, Mariah Carey. Maybe. I'm not saying you do, but you probably do hate some artists that hate Nicki. Wouldn't you wanna express that hate towards them to? Everybody has an opinion on something, positive or negative, I hope you understand the difference.

I find it hilarious how no one considers those other songs. You know, any other song. Like if that's her most popular song, then congrats to her because obviously a lot of people have heard it, only making her better than you. - SammMinajj

That's not a good thing. Her raps are terrible; listen to Anaconda and Stupid Hoe if you have eardrums of steel.

7 She was born in Trinidad

Why share your opinion if it's negative? Add value to the world please. - SammMinajj

I think this is in Spain if I can remember the video for pound the alarm. - FennikenFan9

Where on the map is Trinidad? It sounds like a strange place. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Actually no, it's a magical place full of Unicorns and Rainbows that plays Nicki's music all the time! (Sarcasm) - SirSkeletorThe3rd

The things you didn't know about Iggy Azalea list is better than this garbage.

8 She wrote Stupid Hoe about herself

I read somewhere is was a diss to some girl. - Luckys

Yeah, we all knew that already... - 3DG20

You can't have a wrong opinion... You can have a poorly informed one, a racist one, a sexist one, but it cannot be wrong. Hilarious. Thanks for making me feel a lot smarter.

She Actually Wrote It About Lil Kim, But It Would Be Much More Fitting As An Autobiographical Song - BeatlesFan1964

9 Her mother is a victim of domestic abuse

I feel sorry for her mother but not Nikki - TwilightKitsune

I wish she was a victim of domestic abuse. She or her stupid alter egos. Seriously it makes her look like she is a devil.

I pray for you❤️ - SammMinajj

10 Her film debut was in The Other Woman, with Cameron Diaz

No it wasnt. Her film debut was in Ice Age: Continental Drift. True Nicki fan. Get your facts checked. - TheMainReason

I didn't know she could act lmao. She can't even rap.

The Contenders

11 She Is a Lil Kim Wannabe

Girl BYE! Even Kim don't wanna be Kim

You're a Lil Kim wannabe

no you're

She. Is. NOT!

12 She is the most-charted female rapper in the history of the Billboard Hot 100

RIP music - XxembermasterxX

Know the difference between "Your" and "You're". In this case it's you're retarded.

Yeah I can tell... It's funny thing because EVERYONE here is hating. It shows since you can't even spell jackass. Oh yeah because you like this garbage queen. Your IQ must be lower than here's combined with lil Wayne's! Ha!

Bishes please. Looks like you got your humor from the same place. For real? I'm a dedicated fan. your a dedicated hater. - SammMinajj

13 Her songs are bad

Again, everyone has their opinion, but I meant for this list to be positive. - SammMinajj

I already knew that.

This is an opinion, not a fact, but I do agree with this one. - Rorywilbren

I don't agree

14 She is Beautiful

Although she isn't naturally, she had a lot of plastic surgeries. - XxembermasterxX

Ikr? Why does everyone find her ugly? She is a natural beauty! - Userguy44

She is the Epitome of beauty, in my humble opinion.

15 She went to Laguardia High School, or "The Fame" school

I think she is dumb

16 She Is Degrading to Women

Just look at her music videos. - DarkBoi-X

Her songs are degrading to women, a woman can not OBJECTIFY her self, MEN, SOCIETY AND OTHERS do that by treating women like objects. Objects do not have autonomy and the right to free expression PEOPLE who are FREE do.

She's a feminist, but yet her songs objectify women and make them into toys for men to play with. Clearly someone should buy her a nice fat dictionary, and force her to look up the definition for "feminist".

She enjoys being treated like an object.

17 She is completely against suicide

What are you talking about!? She always be in her songs talking about popping pills, that's an attempted act of suicide. No proof at all. - TheMainReason

18 She is ugly

beautiful - Luckys

This one is obvious. - 3DG20

She looks like a half barbie half donkey hybrid. - DarkBoi-X

She's beautiful. I don't know why humans decide to hate on someone knowing that they don't know them, never met them, probably never will and if they did they would want to take a picture with them and show it to their friends. - TheMainReason

19 She is Illuminati

I have actually looked into this. I have found "proof" that Wayne and drake are probably illuminati. I've done extensive research on this. And actually, the only thing I found about Nicki, was that one she is part of young money (not really meaning much). So, whoever added this, please tell me why you think that, and I personally will take my time and look into it. thanks. - SammMinajj

The Illuminati is dead. And no celebrity has anything to do with the Illuminat they are all just silly wannabes who know nothing of the club. Like come on, really! They are entertainers for gods sake. What would music and acting have to do with an old disbanded club from the 1800's. - TheMainReason

20 Her favorite color is pink
21 She Stole Popularity from Lil Kim

Actually, while I agree with Nicki, I just want to put a small stop to this. There is "evidence" to prove either side: that one is better than the other. While clearly agree with Nicki and others don't, that doesn't really matter. This list is supposed to be positive. I didn't want my first list to turn out like this, but I guess that's just life ✌️. - SammMinajj

22 She has an annoying voice

It's so annoying I just wanna rip my ears off when I hear it. - DarkBoi-X

I knew that already!

That one is obvious

23 She Has Her Own Clothing Line

Her complete clothing are the swimsuits, the concert dresses and that barbie doll clothes - Princesssmooth

Before you know it their going to have a One Direction makeup line! Oh wait. THEY ALREADY HAVE! - RiverClanRocks

24 Her fans have a lower IQ than she does

i'm smart - Luckys

Savage - XxembermasterxX

Like the person who made this list.

And yours is lower than a 0

26 She has made out with Jessica Simpson
27 She objectifies women with Anaconda
28 She said her female celebrity crush is Kate Upton
